Novak Djokovic on front pages of newspapers across globe

Novak Djokovic's 6-7 (2), 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-2 win over Andy Murray in the Australian Open final captured headlines all over the globe -- from Melbourne to Chennai, India, and all the way back home to Belgrade, Serbia, where they called him "The King of Melbourne" and "Super Serb."

My personal favorite: Djokovic makes the front page of Roger Federer's hometown paper in Switzerland, Basler Zeitung. The caption? "Djokovic's third strike." Are they trying to jinx him?

After the jump, check out a sampling of newspaper front pages on which Djokovic is featured.
